'Something new'

There was a swap recently over at Woolaholics where we had to try a new technique for a swapee. Deb (aka Mooska) and I were both too late on the sign ups so we decided to have a private swap and now that she has her parcel I can post about it!!

Firstly I did some dyeing which you've seen before...



For the first time ever I knitted socks! It was really exciting and I was challenged quite a few times and the socks did get thrown against the wall but I did finish them. They are 8ply Lincraft Cosy Wool and it's the Brigid pattern which I really like. I'm now about to start another pair for my nanna for christmas...

Hope you enjoyed your parcel Deb!

I've said it before, I'll say it again - the dye job was magnificent! So glad I got to see it in person before it flew off. And the socks - lovely. Everyone needs purple socks!

Great job Bec! I'm in awe!! Did have a giggle at you throwing them against the wall though LOL

The dyeing is brilliant! And I love those socks. Clever you!

Hey Bec,

I am stunned. I didn't realise you dyed the yarn yourself!! It is just stunning. I loved my parcel and wear the socks constantly. I feel very honoured to be the recipient of your very first knitted socks!
They will be treasured.
Deb :)
